Posted on February 23, by Scott Alexander [Content warning: Discussion of social justice, discussion of violence, spoilers for Jacqueline Carey books. This post was inspired by a debate with a friend of a friend on Facebook who has since become somewhat famous.
Andrew Cord criticizes me for my bold and controversial suggestion that maybe people should try to tell slightly fewer blatant hurtful lies: And then complain about losing rather than changing their tactics to match those of people who are winning.
That post [ the one debunking false rape statistics ] is exactly my problem with Scott. It honestly makes me kind of sick. In other words, if a fight is important to you, fight nasty.
If that means lying, lie. If that means insults, insult. If that means silencing people, silence. But in a way, that would be assuming the conclusion. Then if the stress ends up bursting an aneurysm in his brain, I can dance on his grave, singing: I mean, he thinks that sexism is detrimental to society, so spreading lies and destroying people is justified in order to stop it.
I think that discourse based on mud-slinging and falsehoods is detrimental to society. You know who got things done? Why not assassinate prominent racist and sexist politicians and intellectuals? Unless you do not believe there will ever be an opportunity to defect unpunished, you need this sort of social contract to take you at least some of the way.
Bullets, as you say, are neutral. In a war, a real war, a war for survival, you use all the weapons in your arsenal because you assume the enemy will use all the weapons in theirs.

Unfortunately, there might be some radical Protestants around who believe all Catholics deserve to die. So we make an agreement: So then I try to destroy the hated Protestants using the government.
I go around trying to pass laws banning Protestant worship and preventing people from condemning Catholicism.

Unfortunately, maybe the next government in power is a Protestant government, and they pass laws banning Catholic worship and preventing people from condemning Protestantism.
No one can securely practice their own religion, no one can learn about other religions, people are constantly plotting civil war, academic freedom is severely curtailed, and once again the country goes down the toilet.
So again we make an agreement. Like maybe the Protestants could stop saying that the Catholics worshipped the Devil, and the Catholics could stop saying the Protestants hate the Virgin Mary, and they could both relax the whole thing about the Jews baking the blood of Christian children into their matzah.
Rationalists should win, so put the blood libel on the front page of every newspaper! I know of two main ways: Reciprocal communitarianism is probably how altruism evolved.
